Industrial School
Industrial Schools were a form of children’s institution popular in the late nineteenth century. Technically, ‘neglected’ children were sent to industrial school to receive industrial training, whereas ‘criminal’ children were sent to reformatories or training schools. This model of ‘care’ was promoted by the British nineteenth century child-reformer Mary Carpenter.
